Level3 Vs Global Crossing Vs (UK)

Feb 19, 2008

We currently take transit from Level3 and Tiscali in addition to peering at LINX in the UK. We reaching capacity on our 100Mbps connection to Level3 which we take through a Reseller. I plan to keep our Tiscali transit as we receive great routes to Europe.

I have received quotes for increasing our Level3 to 1Gbps with 100 Mbps CDR and also switching to Global Crossing direct which are I think are fairly competitive at ~ 12 per Mbps?

Does any one have direct experience with either of these two providers in the UK and can recommend who has the best support/routes etc? Additionally I see a number of other UK providers are using Telia and NTT. Having had no experience with Telia or NTT I am unsure if they are in the same league as Global Crossing and Level3. Also are there any other Tier 1's we should be looking at?

Global Crossing Looks Bad On The Internet Health Report

Feb 21, 2008

I'm not sure how much people use InternetHealthReport.com, but Global Crossing consistently has the worst packet loss - [url]

I'm not sure what the cause is, but I wouldn't be surprised if it's because they are a primary peer for Hurricane Electric and other budget carries who don't have much other Tier 1 peers (i.e. Xeex).

Any comments from current Global Crossing customers?

UCEPROTECT-Level3

Aug 7, 2008

Just wondering what problems a listing here will cause for emails
[url]and it is Level 3.

rejected emails to some or all other networks?

This is for a Data Center's IP ranges, they have advised the cause was 2 of their customers with 6 servers which all contained multiple IP classes on each server caused this and are saying to wait 7 days before the listings will clear.

I do not believe they will pay the express removal, not sure if they even knew about the listing until it was pointed out to them.

Details from site..

What means listed at UCEPROTECT-Level 3?

GAME OVER. We and our users have seen enough spam and heared all possible excusions why some lazy providers think to be not responsible for what their customers are doing.

We are not just another blacklist. We really know better. Massive spam is always a problem tolerated by the provider.

Your abuser / user ratio is exorbitant high. We expect some minimum standards from soneone claiming to be a professional provider.

Due to the facts that you do not reach our standards, we and many of our users have chosen to no longer allow smtp-traffic from all your IP's and ranges. See above what we are willig to tolerate as a maximum by an provider of your size.

In todays Internet it is no longer acceptable to sit down and wait for abuse to happen.

If you want to become an accepted provider with a good reputation, you will have to install preventive measures.

Click here to see what you can do to prevent spam coming from your ranges.

If you think it is not your job to prevent your IP's flooding the world with spams, we hope that you and your users will enjoy your Intranet.

How can our total ip-space be removed from UCEPROTECT-Level 3?

You can not expect to get a free ride because you are the provider. Our standard removal procedures are also valid for you.

After you have fixed the problems, the UCEPROTECT-Level 3 listing will be removed automatically and free of charge as soon as the causal Level 1 listings will expire.

Every IP listed at Level 1 expires 7 days after we have seen the last abusive action coming from it.

If you don't want your users to be affected up till the free expiration, you can optionally Expressdelist, which is charged a total of 250 EURO per ASN.

That is a huge discount compared to our charges for Level 2 or even Level 1 expressdelistings.

It is necessary that problems are fixed in first place, otherwise your complete IP-space might end up in Level 3 again within a short timeframe

Level3 Stamford DC

Mar 27, 2008

Does anyone have any experience in this DC, or are there any resellers who could help me out? We have equipment all over the US, but want something close to our offices for a more robust testing environment. We're only 30 minutes from NYC, but it's a huge hassle and we already have other equipment there.

I've done searches for other DCs in the area, but they don't turn up too much. I'm open to anything in western CT or Westchester county. The only quote I've gotten so far was ridiculous.

Level3 Pricing

May 3, 2007

Does Level3 charge the same price per rack at every one of their datacenters, or is it dependent on the location? For example, how much would a rack in the Houston datacenter cost compared to the Dallas datacenter? Please no sales people contact me I am just asking to do some research.

Level3 Direct

May 21, 2007

Does Level3 have a monthly minimum of some sort? I currently own a dialup internet service provider, buy through a dialup reseller that mainly uses the Level3 managed modem service, and would like to deal with them directly if possible. I am also interested in their collocation services and ip connections in the future.

How Good Is A Level3 & NLayer Mix

Jul 8, 2009

GNAX has a killer deal on bandwidth, a mix of L3 & nLayer. How good of a network is that?

Level3 & nLayer @ $8 Per/Mbps with no minimum commit
Cogent & Telia & PCCWBTN & nLayer @ $15 Per/Mbps with no minimum commit

How much more premium is the Cogent, Telia, PCCWBTN, & Nlayer compared to just L3 & nLayer?

Level3 Reliable Enough As ONLY Carrier

Sep 14, 2009

We are switching from a reseller that blends several carriers to Level3, to reduce our b/w costs (by a factor of 3x). We are driving upwards of 300Mbps currently.

Is Level3 reliable enough in terms of uptime to be our *only* carrier?

We are running a real-time always-on service with long-lived TCP connections, so frequent disconnections would be problematic. A single downtime of a couple of minutes per month would not be too bad on the other hand.

Switching our stuff to Level3 is a lot of work as it is.

Getting a second provider for the failover, which involves setting up a CISCO edge router with BGP, getting an AS number from ARIN, will make this task too big at this point. Is L3 reliable enough on its own to spare this hassle of a second ISP?

Level3 Discard Bgp Community

Jan 13, 2008

Has anyone had issues with Level3 honoring their discard community recently (3556:9999)? We had to null 2 IPs earlier in the week. The first one they didn't pick up the route when advertised via BGP (or if they did, it took hours). We ended up having to call and get them to filter it manually. The second IP we were able to null route fine using BGP. Now we have another IP being attacked and it looks like Level3 isn't going to pick up the route and discard traffic.

Level3 Vs NTT Verio Vs PCCW

Mar 5, 2008

dedicated server at sentris.com

They offer level3, NTT Verio, and PCCW backbones. I can choose which backbone I want my traffic to go over.

They offer twice as much traffic if I go with PCCW, so it must be the worst provider.

Im thinking of running a gameserver, so I want the lowest latency possible, which provider should I go with?

Colo Resellers In The Level3 DC In PHX?

Jan 15, 2007

I am colo shopping in Phoenix. I have already been in contact with Jeff at Atjeu and iLand (at Level3)....

Are there other shared rack colo providers in the Phoenix or Tucson area? Probably will start with 3-5amp draw and 2-3mbit. Are there other DC's I should be looking at? I don't thing I'd be a spec on the radar at Limelight.

Level3 Price Increase Jan 1st

Jan 19, 2007

We've been considering getting a cabinet at Level3 in Tampa and the last pricing we got was November 2006. Yesterday I spoke with the rep I'd been dealing with to place the order, and was told that Level3 raised their prices substantially as of January 1st.

The quote we got 2 months ago is now a full 30% higher.

Can anyone confirm whether Level3 really did take a fat increase, or am I being hustled?

Level3 East Coast Providers

Sep 7, 2008

either located in L3 facility or L3 connection.

looking for:

2-4GB memory
2x 160gb drives
3-4TB monthly bandwidth
dual xeon cpus or quad

preferable around $200-$250/mo.

am i asking for too much? everyone seems to only offer 1 or 2TB bandwidth but i'm hovering right around 1.5TB a month at my current location so i need a bit more for growth.

i run a non-profit gaming website and our budget is somewhat tight. we've been in a speakeasy datacenter for over 7 years and the only reason we're moving is because we outgrew the small server we were blessed with for so many years.

East Coast Level3 Resellers

Aug 28, 2008

There doesn't seem to be a list of folks that resell Level3 anywhere, and doing a GIS doesn't really help, either.

I'm looking for a couple of names of some companies that offer dedicated servers in Level3 facilities? Preferably in the Northeast, but anywhere on the East Coast is probably fine, too.

I know Limestone and TMS are L3 resellers, but they aren't east coast...

Global Load Balancing

Nov 14, 2008

Looking for quick, easy global load balancing solution. This is actually for a temporary situation (we need to move to a new DC and need to make this seamless as possible). Linux solution preferred if possible. What can we use to get this achieved?

How exactly does it work? does it need VPN between locations or is client redirected to a different IP somehow?

We would consider dedicated hardware solutions provided that we can get 2 pieces for under $2,000 total (ebay i guess).

Global Colo - Round 2

Nov 29, 2007

It seems the more places we can put servers, the more places boss-man wants them

We're setting up an external network to test back into our network from geographically/carrier diverse locations. We've got about 15 hosts up, but most are in the states, one in london, one in amsterdam, one in frankfurt and one in hong kong.

The current wish list of locations includes -

- Japan
- S. Korea
- Australia (holy cow bw is expensive in sydney! is anyone charging less than $500 per Mb?)
- Paris, France (we have one quote in, but it is pretty pricy)
- Italy
- Spain
- Sweden

I'm doing research and have submitted rfq's to companies in most of these locations, but was hoping for personal recommendations of hosts you have used.

RedHat's Global File System

Apr 25, 2009

Is anyone here running GFS? The responsibility of managing a small cluster of them is about to fall into my lap, and the only documentation I can find is on Wikipedia, which is troubling. I've got the man pages, but I was hoping for more of a document outlining how it works.

Why would lock_dlm2 or gfs_scand take up close to 100% CPU with minimal traffic on the machine, for example? What do those do? How can I tune it to not do that?

I'm not so much looking for specific answers here about tuning, but am more curious about where I should be looking for documentation. I find it hard to believe that there is none?
